Dear Students and Families,
Welcome to first grade! It is with great excitement that I begin my 16th year at Hillcrest Elementary. I have taught kindergarten, first grade, and fifth grade for Oak Harbor Public Schools. My background and schooling are in Early Childhood Education and have more than prepared me for this exciting year of first grade!
Each year feels like a new journey as I meet my new students and their families. Learning is a journey, and it's one I look forward to sharing with you. In fact, I know that your child will be more successful this year if we work together to tap their potential.
Collaborating with families is the heart of my teaching. You know your children best. Remember I am here to get any resources you need to help your student and their learning.
Have a fantastic school year!
I look forward to meeting you soon.
